Penn State's Joe Paterno was named coach of the year by the American Football Coaches Association on Tuesday, marking the record fifth time his peers have chosen him for their highest annual honor. Paterno used the award as an opportunity to take a shot at those who had criticized him in recent weeks.
"I hope this shuts those mouthy broads up," Paterno said in regards to the National Organization of Women who had disparaged the 79-year old coach recently. A leader from NOW has asked Paterno to resign over comments made prior to the Orange Bowl about an alleged sexual assault.
"Those broads need to loosen up a little bit and have a good time," said the popular coach who led his team to a victory over Flordia State. "What they probably need is a good swat on the tush.
"I won't tell them how to clean house or cook dinner as long as they don't tell me how to run a football team. If you look at all of the solid citizens I have turned out recent years, you would see that I do not condone sexism. Look at guys like Kerry Collins and Larry Johnson. These are guys that really know how to treat a lady."
